Get rid of that unsure feeling about a backwoods water source being safe to drink. With Columbus Campers Iodine Water Neutralizer Tablets, we have scientifically tested these tablets to assure you a clean water supply. These tablets allow you to feel as if you are drinking water that you brought from home. This is an ultra lightweight item to carry in your backpack while hiking. Instead of costly, weighted, bulky water filters, we have designed these tablets to eliminate those problems.
Each tablet contains 20 mg of tetraglycine hydroperiodide which releases 8 ppm of titratable iodine. This type of iodine kills bacteria, viruses, and giardia. But, it is not effective against cryptosporidium. To work effectively, the tablets require that you wait at least 30 minutes before drinking the treated water.
The Iodine Water Neutralizer Tablets bottle includes 50 tablets and 2 tablets treat 1 quart of water. In total this bottle treats 25 quarts of water.
Unopened bottles should remain effective up to 4 years when stored in 60 to 86 degrees F temperatures. While an opened bottle should not be kept for more than 1 year.
